with Ricky Robertson
February 11, March 3, 31 and April 14. All webinars start at 3:45 p.m.
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma have been shown to negatively impact brain development, physical health, and social-emotional well-being. Without culturally responsive, trauma-sensitive systems in place, schools struggle to address the social-emotional and behavioral needs of students, often relying upon exclusionary discipline that feeds the school-to-prison pipeline. In this series of webinars, participants will: deepen their understanding of the impact of ACEs and trauma; gain tools to respectfully address cumulative and historical trauma; and be introduced to culturally responsive, trauma-informed interventions that foster connection, resilience, and success for students as well as educators.
Target Audience: K-12 Educators
